Note: Most CA Residents need above a 4.0 to get into a UC now. Whereas International students are admitted with much lower GPA's. In addition, International students are guaranteed admittance to at least one school of their choice. International students are never placed in a referral pool and offered ONLY UC Merced.

   28 Top 12.5% seniors were placed in the referral pool Referral Pool 

THE LAW 

The University of California Master Plan Mandate and State Law require the University of California to provide an "appropriate" seat for all students in the Top 12.5% of their High School graduating class (81 Tesoro Students).

The University of California is a taxpayer funded educational institution that operates under a Master Plan that requires California residents to be given "priority" enrollment

State law affirms the State’s commitment to fund all eligible California residents:

"The University of California and the California State University are expected to plan that adequate spaces are available to accommodate all California resident students who are eligible and likely to apply to attend an appropriate place within the system". 

"The State of California likewise reaffirms its historic commitment to ensure that resources are provided to make this expansion possible, and shall commit resources to ensure that [eligible] students ….. are accommodated in a place within the system.” [CA Education Code 66202.5]

 

174 Tesoro Students filed 714 Applications to the University of California.

Tesoro Students Cost of Application Fees
714 applications X $70 application fee = $49,980
The UC used to have a single application that allowed you to apply to 1 or all campuses
174 Applications X $70 application fee = $12,180
The Difference aka... Increased Revenue to the University of California
$48,700

 

The University of California gave 105 students 231 Admits. 

53 Tesoro Students Enrolled in a UC. It appears that 52 Tesoro students were placed in the referral pool and only offered UC Merced.

Campus Enrolled Referral Pool
Berkeley 7  
Davis 0  
Irvine 11  
UCLA 7  
Merced 0 28
Riverside 6  
San Diego 10  
Santa Barbara 8  
Santa Cruz 4  
Total  53  

  

The actual number of students placed in the referral pool can only be confirmed with a Public Records Request. Both the California Auditor and the LAO did rights to know to get the referral pool data. It can be presumed by looking at enrollment by School University wide vs by Campus.

99% of students offered UC Merced do not choose to attend because they are "Over Qualified" for UC Merced. This forces Tesoro High Schools highest achieving students to go to college at a Private University or Out of State to find a college comparable to UC flagship schools like UC Berkeley or UCLA.

Financial Damage to Tesoro Families:

The cost to these 28 families in increased tuition and fees:

Cost to a Tesoro High School student
Out of State/Private Tuition $55,000  220,000
UC Tuuition per year $15,000 $60,000
Difference $40,000 $160,000

28 Students X $160,000 = $4.48 million dollars taken out of the local economy

 

Unjust Enrichment by the University of California at the expense of California taxpayers:

Increased "Profit" to the University of CA when it "Sells" a Seat
Average UC Tuition: CA Resident $15,000
Nonresident Supplemental Tuition $30,000
Total $45.000
UC Profit from "selling" a seat $45,000 (Average nonresident tuition) $45,000
UC has already been paid $30,000 for that seat in California taxpayer money $30,000
Total UC Revenue for "selling" 1 seat  $75,000

The UC sold 28 Tesoro High School Seats X $75,000 per seat

$75,000 X 28 = $2,100,000

UC Increased revenue over 4 years = $8,400,000

UC unjustly enriched by $8.4 million

UC unjustly enriched by $8.4 million $8,400,000

 

UNJUST ENRICHMENT

The UC is profiting at the expense of hard working and deserving San Juan Hills students, in violation of State law and their Master Plan Mandate which requires the University of California to provide "qualified" California resident students with "priority" enrollment. The University of California has a mandate to provide these students with an "appropriate" admit to a school they are qualified to attend. A referral to UC Merced when an applicant is "qualified" for UCLA or UC Berkeley is a violation of State Law and the University of California's Master Plan Mandate.

Any student that has been denied an "appropriate" admit is entitled to an "appropriate"    admit or financial compensation so that they can afford to attend a 4-year Private University or Out-Of State College without being financially penalized. 

The University of California cannot be allowed to continue to deny California Residents educational opportunity in order to unjustly enrich itself at the expense of California taxpayers.
